MILWAUKEE -- The Chicago Cubs have placed struggling reliever Jose Veras on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique. Right-handed reliever Brian Schlitter was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take Veras spot in an inconsistent bullpen, and arrived in Milwaukee in time for Saturday nights game against the Brewers. Veras had a 15.88 ERA over six games, blowing both his save opportunities. Chicago signed the righty in the off-season to a one-year deal after he had 21 saves in 2013 between Houston and Detroit. Schlitter pitched six games for the Cubs this season before being sent down April 12. He had a 6.35 ERA with no record in Chicago, and a 3.60 ERA with three saves for Iowa. The Cubs bullpen overall was 1-5 with a 4.03 ERA entering Saturday. Pedro Strop is Chicagos closer. Veras had only pitched twice since blowing a save April 11, last taking the mound Thursday and giving up two runs in the eighth inning of a 5-2 loss to Arizona. Veras said he started feeling the strain a couple of days ago. "Its the best thing to for him to get him back on track," manager Rick Renteria said. Anthony Chickillo Jersey

Bachman stood his ground against Zack Kassian and saw the puck dribble off the Canuck rookies stick, then settled in and backstopped the Stars to a 5-2 win over Vancouver Tuesday that put Dallas in first place in the Pacific Division.Rory McIlroy said it had been a valuable week for him despite losing to Jason Day in the WGC-Dell Match Play semi-finals. McIlroy missed a couple of decent chances to extend the match against Day, who will become world No 1 on Monday, but eventually went down by one hole in Austin.The Northern Irishman battled back after losing three holes in four just after the turn, but a missed birdie putt at the 17th and Day holing a 12-footer for par at last meant it would be a third place play-off against Rafa Cabrera Bello for him instead of the final. Day beats McIlroy in thriller Jason Day marked his return to world No 1 by beating Rory McIlroy at the WGC-Dell Match Play I thought it was a good quality match. If I have to look back on it there were a couple of opportunities around the third and fourth where I did not convert and then not birdieing 12 or 13 was the real downfall, he told Sky Sports.Losing 12 and 13, I think the catalyst for that was that shift in momentum on 11 and I never really recovered. To go two down I knew I had an uphill battle on my hands and Jason was not giving me anything.I made a couple of birdies in the last five holes but it just was not good enough.I feel like I played well, did not make a bogey out there and I did not hand him anything, but obviously disappointed I am not in the final. McIlroy finished last years Masters with a 66 and victory next month at Augusta would complete a career grand slam And McIlroy is pleased with where his game is as he puts the finishing touches on his game ahead of thhe years first major, The Masters.ddddddddddddMcIlroy heads to Augusta for the eighth time in search of victory to complete the career grand slam - he finished fourth last year to claim his best Masters finish but was still six shots adrift of winner Jordan Spieth. Highlights from the WGC Dell Match Play semi-final between Jason Day and Rory McIlroy I was saying coming into this week that no matter if I play three, six or seven rounds, playing match play and feeling like you are in contention every time you step on the first tee is a great feeling and something you cant replicate in practice, he added.The week has been very positive overall; I wish I would have been able to get one more win under my belt, but I am very happy with my game going into Augusta.
